Ultrafast Code Generator for Human/Machine Interface Designs will be Shown on Cypress’ Latest Microcontrollers; Event to Also Feature Two Altia Talks on GUI Trends

Altia, an international leader in GUI design and development tools, today announced it will be demonstrating its DeepScreen code generator at embedded world 2020, running on advanced Cypress Traveo™ II MCUs. DeepScreen allows GUI and HMI designers to convert Altia Design prototype graphics into deployable graphics code in seconds—and with the Traveo II solution, users have the best possible platform for a wide range of automotive applications.

Altia’s DeepScreen provides ultimate control for the automotive user interface developer. Supporting a wide range of hardware targets, DeepScreen turns Photoshop graphics into pure ANSI C code in seconds, eliminating hours of tedious hand coding. DeepScreen is optimized to leverage the features of the Traveo II, combining the smallest footprint with the best performance.

As part of its demo, Altia will also be showcasing its Altia HMI Development Software, as well as its Altia Safety Monitor (ASM) that uses the digital signature engine of the Cypress Traveo II to ensure accurate display output. Should a display error be detected, the ASM sends an immediate alert to the driver so the issue can be addressed.

“Altia DeepScreen, joined with the Cypress Traveo II, is a new benchmark in speed and performance for automotive GUI designers,” stated Mike Juran, Altia chief executive officer. “Vehicle systems are reaching a new level of sophistication every day. DeepScreen’s support for the latest, most advanced microcontrollers ensures that the human-machine interface can keep pace for greater safety, style, and convenience.”

Altia is showcasing its DeepScreen platform, as well as other Altia HMI development tools, during embedded world 2020 from its exhibit at Hall 4, Booth 4-316 in the Nuremburg Exhibition Centre.

This year’s embedded world will also feature two Altia executives speaking on the latest topics in GUI design. On Wednesday, February 26, Lars Anderson, senior product manager, will present “GUI Trends—Building UX for the Future” at the electronic displays Conference 2020 (Session 4, 16:15). On Thursday, February 27, Gary Miller, technical marketing manager, will speak on “How to Improve GUI Testing in an Agile Development Process” at the embedded world Conference (Session 9.1 II, 14:30).
